Sigma EF-530 DG ST flash

Just wondering whether this flash will work well with the K01?

I believe I read on here that it does not. I have the Sigma 530 Super and a K-01, but I haven't tried them together yet. I can try later and report back.

I've just tried a 530 Super on the K-01. It works in direct and bounce. However, in low light, only the focus assist lamp on the K-01 is used, not the one on the flash. With the K-5, it does use the focus assist lamp on the Sigma in preference to the one in the camera.

That's too bad. I really like the focus assist lamp on the 530.
